Chronicle ★★★★

Wow! Having not seen this film since its cinema release last year I completely forgot how damn awesome it is! I really enjoyed how shooting the film found footage style really integrated the audience into the story and how the growth of Andrew's powers impacted the way the camera was used. The action throughout is outstanding, from cloud football to Andrew's neighbourhood scumbag attack. This all leads up to the finale which is unbelievably entertaining, the climax of which hits you like a giant spear through the chest. All the performances were very believable, especially from DeHaan who really sells the socially awkward, troubled teenager.
